Touted as ‘the comedian’s comedian” by People, Maniscalco finds himself “at the vanguard of a live comedy revolution” according to Pollstar. And the man “NBC Nightly News” called “comedy’s new superstar” is showing no signs of slowing down.
Not only has the star power of Maniscalco rocketed upward in the past few years thanks to shows described by Billboard as ‘devastatingly full force comedy,” but also due to his high energy Netflix Original special – “Stay Hungry” – streaming now. The special, which was taped over a span of five sold-out shows at the legendary Radio City Music Hall, had Maniscalco playing for a total of 28,312 long-time fans and early believers in his unique comedic voice.
Vulture recently said of the entertainer’s journey to success, “Maniscalco, without a breakout TV or film role, built a tremendous fan base the old-fashioned way: one joke at a time, one audience at a time.” Although he may not have started his career in film, Maniscalco’s loyal fans will continue to see more acting roles from him with a performance opposite Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman. The film arrives in select theaters on November 1st and premieres on Netflix November 27th. Maniscalco is set to attend the world premiere of the film with the star-studded cast at this year’s New York Film Festival on September 27th.
With a string of record-breaking sold-out comedy appearances, a best-selling memoir Stay Hungry and a role in the award-winning Green Book, 2018 was a milestone year that culminated in comedian, actor and best-selling author Sebastian Maniscalco receiving Billboard’s inaugural Comedian of the Year award. The always “hungry” multi-hyphenate followed up that success with arguably “the biggest week of his career” to-date according to Entertainment Weekly by kicking off 2019 with a week that included performing four shows at “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden, and releasing his new Netflix Original special– “Stay Hungry” – streaming now. He also served as host of the 2019 MTV VMAs.
Maniscalco continues an already remarkable year wrapping his blockbuster Stay Hungry Tour and kicking off his new You Bother Me Tour. To purchase tickets visit sebastianlive.com. Don’t miss your chance to catch Sebastian Maniscalco and the “You Bother Me” tour live at ilani!
